Apple iTunes Phone

I know it's completely unrealistic, but I really hope the pending iTunes phone from Apple/Motorola shocks the crap out of everyone by being... a good phone. Like one that is good at making phone calls, with long battery life, a small number of big, simple buttons, sub-2-second turn on time, clear microphone and speakers and simple download of address book from various PC and Mac PIMs. Nothing else matters. In fact I hope it is not even an iTunes phone at all, but that the whole iTunes thing was a ruse to hide the fact that Apple made a mobile phone that actually works.

If it's yet another crappy camera-phone-video game-mp3 player-email device, then I could care less.
